美国有一架小型飞机坠毁,与一辆汽车碰撞并发生大火,机上五人当场死亡,包括著名体育女记者Carley Ann McCord。

事发于周六早上9时22分左右,肇事的Piper Cheyenne双引擎小型飞机载着六人,从路易斯安那州的拉斐特起飞,准备前往亚特兰大观看球赛,但飞机起飞后不久,在距离机场1.6公里外失去控制及坠毁,撞向停泊在邮局停车场内的一辆汽车。

大批救援人员接报后赶到现场,发现五人当场死亡,一名37岁男子获救,与地面的三人被送往医院救治,其中一人是被小型机撞到的汽车司机。Carley Ann McCord的丈夫证实她的死讯。

飞机坠毁的地区除了有邮局外,还有银行、食肆和其他店铺。有目击者表示,飞机坠地前夹断附近公寓上方的电缆,整栋大楼顿时停电,飞机高度若再低一点,后果可能更严重。

A bus attached to a small white trailer lost traction and began sliding sideways through an intersection down a road, Saturday in Minnesota.

The video, taken by Neil D. Marriot, shows the bus slowly gliding parallel down Eden Prairie Road, taking up both lanes with a trailer jackknifing behind it. The roads, which were icy according to KMSP, were a likely cause of the bus losing traction. The clip has since been shared thousands of times.

The bus thankfully does not appear to crash into anything during the video, but Marriot does admit it kept him from making it to work.
